Yearbooks are not just for seniors anymore! While their imprint is indeed prominent, we want to encourage all grade levels to document their years at Gateway through writing and photography submissions to our publications and bring home a yearbook each year, memorializing their growth through high school!
Journalism I is open to sophomores and anyone else who needs "bootcamp" training in writing and photography, as well as graphic design, for print and online media. See the syllabus here.
Advanced Journalism & Publications are again combined as last year, given the challenges of scheduling in these unusual times. However, we are lucky to have a few experienced crew members who will guide our editorial decision making, and create the pages our annual yearbook. See syllabi here.
All students are involved in the details of production, such as coordinating picture days, photographing events during and after school, as well as cataloguing the content and details of the entire year. The lessons and skills practiced lead to student growth and maturity in all other disciplines. I am a firm believer in the practical arts as "real world" experiences supporting the core disciplines.
